US 380 remains congested as a 20-mile construction project to widen the roadway from Loop 288 in Denton to Custer Road continues. But officials say the end result will support the growing development along the corridor and provide better access to the major north/south roadways in Frisco. Dallas Regional Mobility Coalition Executive Director Drew Campbell said US 380 will be the next "major artery" in Collin and Denton counties as growth continues at a rapid pace in the area. TxDOT started US 380 construction in March 2016 at a cost of more than $50 million. Frisco's portion of the US 380 construction includes a 2 1/2-mile stretch from FM 423 to Custer Road. The roadway through Frisco is being widened to a six-lane freeway with eastbound and westbound access roads. Overpasses will be constructed at the DNT, BNSF Railroad and Preston Road intersections. The entire project is expected to be complete by winter 2018.
